We had a great experience here. Hotel was Awesome.. Very Friendly & Helpful group. Would highly recommend letting them make reservations to the Museums for you so you don't stand in line. Well worth a few more dollars. Thanks so much for the hospitality..

As Florence is known for historical structures in the 18th t0 19th century, Hotel Otro De Medici sits in the middle of Florence where everything is a walk away... it would be a bit of a walk anyway. But be assured that the stroll around Florence will be fun and fascinating as there are a lot of things to see... More

Dear Guest, Thanks for you nice review. I appreciate how you enjoyed your stay in Florence, and had positive meet with our staff. As I replied to other reviews, decoration style is something that involves personal opinion, so most poeple likes it, some might like it less. We are gradually renovating the rooms, so next time you can decide to... More

After reading very positive but mixed reviews of this hotel in mid-February, we booked into this hotel for two nights in May, 2015. Overall we have not been happy with our experience from the beginning and would not return to the hotel. I would preface this review by saying that we are seasoned international travellers, have had a wide range... More

We visited Florence in early May and decided to stay at the Hotel Orto De Medici. We made this decision on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews, the hotel's website and other online forums -- and we could not have been happier. The hotel is just a few blocks from all key attractions including the Duomo, the Ufizzi, the Campanile... More

What a wonderful hotel! The location is perfect, within walking distance of all of Florence's major sites. Our room was comfortable with a lovely balcony. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast included with our stay offered many options and a beautiful outdoor seating area. I would stay here again if returning to Florence.

Hotel was central, only a short walk from the Duomo, but it was quiet. The reception staff were very efficient and helpful. We had a ground floor garden room overlooking the fountain and it was clean and airy. Breakfast was the usual continental style but there was an amazing machine for fresh orange juice. The coffee was good and did... More

Within walking distance of almost all we set out to see. Easy to have staff call taxi if needed. Good recommendations for restaurants near-by. Modernly appointed, simple rooms, clean bathroom with tub. Quiet on the interior and pleasant.

We loved the combination of convenient location and quiet. It was tricky getting oriented from the train station, but very walkable once we figured it out. Florence is not an easy town for bag dragging, but once we got there we could walk to the Duomo in just a few minutes. Our classic room was small, but well thought out,... More

My wife and I spent a week in Florence, and stayed at Orto de' Medici. The location is pretty good, within easy walking distance from the main sights, but away from the busiest (i.e. noisiest) areas. The room (a standard double two floors above ground) was simple but charming in an italian old-fashioned kind of way. Bathroom was surprisingly large... More
